Chart Your Path to Success

How do you best use your resources to attain your goals? If you have a limited budget, how might you bootstrap through phases of growth? If you have limited time, what is feasible?

Even before we wrap up our immersive three-day journey, we’ll start to create a plan of action. We look at potential timelines, investments, staff training, outsourcing.

Then, the 5forests team will take all the insights, discoveries, and strategies discussed over the three days and consolidate them into a comprehensive Brand Strategy and Communications Report. This report will include the details of your strategic blueprint, insights into customer behavior, and your brand messaging framework. It will provide clear direction and actionable steps, ensuring that the momentum gained during our workshop translates into real-world success for your brand. Think of it like a roadmap for your journey ahead, designed to help you and your team stay on track, especially when overwhelm threatens to creep back in.

Workshop FAQs

Who should attend these workshops?

These workshops are designed for business owners, marketing teams, and other stakeholders who are keen on shaping the future of their brand. We recommend that key decision makers from each business unit attend, and it’s great to have a selection of customer-facing employees in the room, as well!

What is the ideal group size for the workshop?

These workshops work best with teams of 4 or more (our largest held 26 people!). We’ve found that this size allows for a diverse range of perspectives, enhances discussion and collaboration, yet is small enough to maintain a personalized and interactive experience.

Where is the workshop conducted?

These workshops are fully immersive, on-site experiences. We believe in the power of face-to-face interactions and have found that conducting workshops in person, on your premises, yields the best outcomes. The honest conversations and rich insights that arise from the group dynamics in a physical space cannot be replicated online. It also allows us to understand your brand in its natural environment, observe the interactions of your team, and tailor our approach accordingly.

What is the cost of the workshop?

Workshop fees are tailored to your specific needs and circumstances. It depends on factors such as the location of your business, the number of participants attending, and the complexity of your industry and brand landscape. We understand that every business is unique, and we aim to provide a workshop that delivers maximum value for your investment. Please reach out to us directly for a custom quote based on your requirements.

How far in advance do I need to book a workshop?

We are generally booked 2-3 months in advance.
